Commencement Exercises 


Friday Evening 

The Thirtieth of May 

Nineteen Hundred and Ninety-cSeven 


Long ago Chief Massasoit, 

Here in this Old Colony, 

Granted peace and trust to strangers, 

Pilgrims from across the sea. 

We salute you, Massasoit, 

Proudly sharing in your name 

Faith, endurance, peace and knowledge, 

Gifts of strength we now proclaim. 

We will hold aloft our banner, 
Massasoit's green and white, 
Keeping firm our hope and courage, 
Forging paths of human right. 

With endurance, faith for the future, 
Pride where there once was none in sight, 
We share learning with all people, 
Peace and love our guiding light. 

Words written by 
Professor Dorothy Gibbs and Afrika Hayes Lambe

The Academic Procession and Regalia 

The academic procession is one of the oldest traditions of colleges through- 
out the world. In medieval times the ordinary dress of the university scholar, 
whether student or teacher, was the dress of the cleric including a long gown, 
and often in cold weather a cloak with a hood which could be pulled up over the 
head for cover and protection. 

Although fashions have changed since the 16th century, scholars of the post- 
medieval period have retained the academic attire. Eventually the attire was 
prescribed by university statues to distinguish the different faculties and de- 
grees-of-learning. The associate, bachelor, master, and doctoral gowns differ 
stylistically in cut and decorative motif. 

The colorful hoods, which indicate fields of learning and the institutions 
conferring the degree, were originally worn over the head, but during the 16th 
century, caps were adopted and the hood was draped over the shoulder. 

A long tassel is attached to the middle part of the top of the cap, to drape 
over the left edge of the mortar board. The tassel may be black, gold, or the 
color appropriate to the academic field or level of achievement. 

An Intercollegiate Code has been adopted to represent the different depart- 
ments of learning and has set forth the standards for academic dress in the 
United States. The hoods are lined with the official colors of the college from 
which the wearer received his or her highest degree, while the collar of the hood 
denotes the academic subject area in which the wearer majored. These colors 
are assigned according to the following scheme:

beautiful for spacious skies, 
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Above the fruited plain. 


America! America! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea. 

beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years, 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears. 


America! America! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And crown thy good with brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea.
